    Default Book 2 - Chapter 2, Part 3

    Zlack, Yan, Anh, Jaya, Janger, you are welcome. Gerald, the fight is too short ... Jiu Long, oh no ... the reason I rebooted has NOTHING to do with the quality of existing translation. In fact, I still feel that Grundle's sentences flow better than mine. I can go on and on on this, but I have already explained my 'philosophy' in translating in other threads. I am fully aware that I am in the minority here, but I believe in my reason of taking this approach.

    Anyway, here is the last part of Book 2 Chapter 2. I am trying to catch up as much as possible during this Christmas break, I am going back to work Monday.



    This incident caught both sides by surprise. The elderly man yelled, Wushuang!

    In all his life, Du Fuwei was used to tyrannize other people. He did not come to provoke you, just consider your family and your mountain as blessed. And now someone dared to disgrace the people under his protection in front of his face. Immediately he turned around, his eyes gleaming with murderous aura.

    Being stared by him, the girl called Wushuang was a bit afraid, but apparently she was accustomed to being arrogant and willful, hence she still spoke defiantly, Who told them to stare at people with shifty gaze?

    Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling crawled up awkwardly. Horrified, they both pulled Du Fuweis right and left arm toward the door. Who would have thought that Du Fuwei did not budge at all? He simply stared coldly at the girl.

    Kou Zhong knew Du Fuwei was about to make his move. Die! he pleaded, Lets go! Your sons were wrong.

    The elderly man also stood up and cupped his fist, In this matter my humble niece is wrong, we beg for two Xiao Xiongdis forgiveness. If you are injured from the fall, we are willing to compensate for the medical bill.

    Du Fuwei coldly said, State your school and background, lets see if I will provoke you or not.

    The three young men immediately stood up with their hands on their weapons hilt, scaring the other patrons that they all left their table in a flurry and huddled in the corner.

    The tall and handsome young man proudly said, My humble father is Liang Shidu of Shuofang, Junior [orig. Wanbei younger generation, referring to self] is Liang Shunming. Whether you want to provoke us or not, Sire may decide it for yourself.

    The other two young men and the girl also showed a proud, mixed with condescending expression; apparently they were quite proud of Liang Shidus name.

    Du Fuweis countenance did not change at all; as if nothing had happened, he said, Turns out Yingyang [soaring hawk] Lang Jiangs [lit. youth general] beloved son. Yingyang Pai [soaring hawk sect] has always been willing to be the imperial courts running dogs [i.e. lackeys]; only recently they saw the wind and set the helm and thus allied themselves with the Tujue [Turkic ethnic group, see Book 1 Chapter 2]. Two female soaring hawks Liang Shifu and Liu Wuzhou have become Tujues two dogs. Why cant I afford to provoke you?

    Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling have also heard the name Yingyang Pai, they knew it was a well-known big northern sect with impressive reputation. They believed this Liang Shunming must have a real skill; perhaps they could take this opportunity to escape. Hence they no longer said anything but quietly scooted over toward the door.

    The elderly man stepped in front of Liang Shunming and the other two young men who had already pulled their weapons out; he said in heavy voice, Friend, you are experienced and knowledgeable, obviously you are not an ordinary person. May I ask your honorable surname and great given name? And how should I address you?

    Du Fuwei replied indifferently, Since this kid is Liang Shidus son, Sire must be related to Liang Shidus sworn brother, Shen Tianqun of Luling. Based on your age, you ought to be Shen Tianquns elder brother Shen Naitang, unless my eyes have failed me.

    The elderly man suddenly stood up straight, his beard spread out, his appearance became bold and powerful without equal. Laughing loudly, he replied, Looks like Friend understood Jianghu matters like the back of your hand, you must not be a nameless character. Why not announce your name? Perhaps we have a little bit of relation.

    Having a bit of relation was a Jianghu terminology, including relation such as enmity.

    Du Fuwei threw his head back and let out a long laughter. Yet as soon as he stopped laughing, the cold murderous look returned to his eyes, as he coldly said, I hope he is not Liang Shidus only son; otherwise, his family line will be cutoff.

    Shen Naitangs countenance changed immediately; it seemed like this person was not intimidated by Liang Shidu and Shen Tianqun, two powerful masters whose names shook Wulin; he must have a very strong background.

    Taking a step back, he pulled his broadsword and sternly said, Very well! Let me, Shen Naitang, increase my knowledge by experiencing Friends real skill.

    Relying on his family skill, Liang Shunming has always been thinking too highly of himself, plus he had his lover standing right next to him, naturally he could not stand it anymore. Moving along with Shen Naitang, he launched the Yingyang Pais famous Soaring Hawk Sword Technique, thrusting his sword toward Du Fuweis chest with half-real, half-fake stance. It was definitely not an ordinary move.

    Shen Naitang also had confidence in him, he moved aside and stood ready to give him assistance.

    Unexpectedly Du Fuwei still had time to look back toward Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling and said with a laugh, Yingyang Pai is located in the north; therefore, they are heavily influenced by Tujue martial techniques. They rely mainly on ruthless attack, strong offense but not strong defense; therefore, if in one attack they fail to down the opponent, they could only take the beating.

    In the meantime, Liang Shunmings sword was already less than three cun from his chest; suddenly it changed form, the fake became real, and went straight up toward Du Fuweis throat. It was indeed a ruthless attack.

    Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling stared with eyes wide open. On one hand they wanted Liang Shunmings sword to kill Du Fuwei, on the other hand they did not wish to see him fallen from power like this. It was a very conflicting thought.

    It was only this time that Du Fuwei finally reacted; tossing his head backward, his sleeve flicked forward.

    Ding! Surprisingly, it was the clear ringing of metal clashing against metal.

    While everybody was still puzzled, Liang Shunmings body was severely shaken. As his sword was struck by an unknown object and was swept away, his defense was widely open. Du Fuwei bent his body on the waist, and fast as lightning his leg flew toward Liang Shunmings crotch. Apparently his objective was to cut his family line.

    Seeing this, Shen Naitangs countenance underwent huge changes. It was only then did he realize the opponent was the dark road overlord Du Fuwei, whose nickname was universe in his sleeve [orig. qiankun, also means heaven and earth/yin and yang].

    Du Fuwei had a pair of arm guards about a chi [Chinese foot, approx. 1ft or 1/3m] long hidden inside his sleeve, with which he could injure his opponent by using it in a surprise attack. The reason he was using it in the very first move was because he had determined to kill these people to shut their mouth.

    Since Shen Naitang knew it was him, how could he dare to be confident? With a roar he brandished his broadsword while charging forward, his target was the left side of Du Fuweis neck.

    Du Fuwei let out a cold snort, the other arm guard in his left sleeve flashed, it collided with Shen Naitangs blade, but his kick was not affected at all.

    Liang Shunming knew the situation was far from good, unleashing everything he had, his left palm pressed downward, while taking a step back simultaneously.

    Bang! Liang Shunming let out a muffled grunt. Although he managed to block Du Fuweis kick, he was unable to block the shocking qi surging into his body from Du Fuweis foot. His mouth spurted fresh blood, while his body was thrown backward.

    After exchanging one strike with him, Shen Naitang was also forced to take half a step back. Get Liang Gongzi [young master] out of here! he bellowed.

    Who would have thought that as Wushuang and her martial brothers Meng Chang and Meng Ran, three people saw Liang Shunming was falling toward them, they automatically reached out to hold him, but felt as if Liang Shunming weighed a thousand catties [approx. 1/2kg or 1lb]? Although they were able to receive him head on, they were unable to withstand the impulse; four people fell back together, crashing onto the tables and chairs behind them that everything was shattered in pieces, the people and the cups, plates, and the food and drink inside them fell into a mess. It was a really sorry sight.

    Du Fuwei let out a cold laugh. His sleeves shot out, with either the sleeve or the arm guard, he attacked Shen Naitang relentlessly that the latter was powerless to retaliate.

    Fortunately, Shen Naitangs foundation was quite solid; his martial art skill was also quite strong that for the time being he was still able to hold his ground.

    By this time Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling had already reached the door. After giving each other eye signals, they dashed out madly from the restaurant.

    Du Fuwei had never expected that these two obedient sons, who kept calling him Dad left and right, would seize the opportunity to slip away. Anger and anxiety attacked his mind, his offensive suddenly lost quite a bit of momentum, so that Shen Naitang was able to reclaim a little bit of advantage.

    Seeing Shen Naitang was able to prolong the channeling of his qi, Du Fuwei knew that he would not be able to kill the opponent within ten moves. After considering the pros and cons, he decided hed better capture the two boys first and come back later to kill these people to shut their mouth.

    With a loud roar he forced Shen Naitang to withdraw two steps back, while he himself floated out of the door.

    Meanwhile Shen Wushuang and the others were helping Liang Shunming, who had received internal injury, to stand up. They thought that once again Shen Naitang had displayed his divine power to repel the enemy. To their shock, however, as soon as Shen Naitang was able to stabilize himself, he was forced to withdraw three more steps while wah! he spurted a mouthful of fresh blood.

    Shen Wushuang abandoned Liang Shunming, leaving him with her two martial brothers, while she herself rushed toward Shen Naitang and grabbed his arms. Dabo! [paternal uncle, older than ones father] What happened?

    Shen Naitang took a deep breath, while wiping the blood on the corner of his mouth with his sleeve. This man is universe in his sleeve Du Fuwei, he said in heavy tone, Even if your Die came here personally, I am afraid he is still not his match. We must leave immediately.

    I'm with you on this. Multiple translators results in a subpar translation because every translator has his own style and philosophy regarding how translation should be done, so you end up reading something when suddenly the style shifts, or the new person isn't careful with using past translations (such as keeping the name of a martial arts move the same as the previous translator), or doesn't know how to us pinyin properly, etc.

    One translator means consistency.

    Dear Foxs.

    Yes it's too short but here was released the pure yang of chinese Kung fu, no fancy footing around. In real fighting one does not play around but try to get the job done soonest in order to conserve one's energy and to protect against retaliation from others. Here it was so palpable that it was kill or be killed. Big thanks Foxs.

    Default Book 2 - Chapter 3, Part 1

    Fu, Anh, Jaya, HPC, you are welcome. Chilian, welcome to the forum; glad you like it. Whiteskwirl, thanks for your support. I haven't visited your wuxiasociety for a while, how is it going? Gerald, I guess you are right. I remember Bruce Lee also said something like '60 seconds' (was it the movie? Bruce Lee movie, not Nicholas Cage's 'gone in 60 seconds'. Can't remember, it's been a long time). Sky, thanks. How was yours? How's Christmas celebration in China? I hope it's not as commercialized as in the US ...


    Book 2 Chapter 3 Acting Without Thinking

    When Du Fuwei pursued outside the restaurant, he saw all the lanterns along this shady street were still shining brightly. It was only then did he realize that this was the red-light district; most of the brothels in this town were concentrated here, the sound of people and carriages still lingered in the air.

    Without thinking he dashed into a side alley, jumped onto the roof, focused his eyes and ears, and tried to listen with all his might, while at the same time unleashed his lightness skill to fly over houses and jumped over the roof. In just a short period of time he had already been around several streets in a big circle. But he still did not see the two little demons, neither did he hear hurried footsteps of people running away.

    With Du Fuweis ability, he still suffered a big headache.

    He had already made a prompt decision of leaving the enemy and running out to pursue, yet he was still too late to intercept these two boys. He knew the boys were exceedingly smart, they must have hidden someplace nearby. Unless he could search every place within a hundred zhang radius, he could forget about ever finding them.

    While running around, he could not stop cursing his own stupidity; if from the beginning he controlled them by sealing their acupoints, without any care whether he would hurt them or not, all these maddening things would not have happened.

    Could it be that he had lost his mind that he made such a gross miscalculation? It was really unlike his usual style of always make thorough planning on everything.

    He sighed, and then jumped back to the ground to carry out his search operation.

    Meanwhile, Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling, two boys had just stepped into a low-grade brothel more than ten buildings away.

    Naturally it was Kou Zhongs crafty idea. Because common sense dictates that they would run as far away as possible. But if they do that, Du Fuwei only had to grab any passerby and asked, and he would immediately know the direction these two boys were running madly. Besides, Fu Junchuo once told them that martial art masters are also experts in following a trail. Therefore, they deliberately did the opposite. They looked for the most crowded place nearby, and mingled among the crowd. Naturally it led them into this Piao Xiang [floating fragrance] Courtyard.

    But their clothes and down-and-out appearance gave the people no reason to compliment them. Upon entering the gate, they were immediately intercepted by four bouncers who looked like they were also the bodyguards of somebody important. We are full! one of them shouted, Please go someplace else.

    Kou Zhong giggled and put his hand into his pocket. It was only then did he recall that in his anxiety to rescue Xu Ziling and thought that he would not return alive, he had generously donated all his silver to Susu. Thereupon he hurriedly slapped Xu Zilings arm.

    Having known each other so well, naturally Xu Ziling understood what the slap means. He took out a few pieces of silver and stuffed it into one the mens hand, while saying with a laugh, Our father and all our five uncles are government officials in Yangzhou. This time we came with our [paternal] uncle to do some shopping here. Serve us well, and you will be heavily rewarded.

    Looking at the silver in his hand, the man smiled and said, Shaoye [young master[1]] please follow Xiaoren [little/lowly one, referring to self].

    Greatly delighted, the two boys stepped into the hall. The procuress, who dressed like an old demon, stepped out to meet them. As soon as the two boys saw her, they sucked in a mouthful of air; thinking that just by looking at this old procuress, they knew that compared to the Zui Feng Lou [drunken wind balcony; actually, lou means multi-story building], this brothel was several levels below. But this time escaping with their lives was a more pressing matter, so they could not be bothered by it.

    When the procuress saw them, she immediately frowned as well. Not because the smell of their mothers milk had not dried yet, because she had seen a lot of patrons even younger than they were, but because it was the very first time that she saw customers that looked like they have not taken a bath in a year, with their unkempt hair and filthy face.

    The procuress stared mercilessly at the bouncer and without any trace of politeness said, Ah Yuan, whats going on here?

    Grinning, Xu Ziling offered her some silver. Who would have thought that the procuress did not even cast him a glance? Rules are rules, she said in disdain, Didnt you see the sign at the main entrance, No proper attire, no service? If you want our Piao Xiang Courtyard girls to entertain you, go home, take a bath and change your clothes; then you can come back!

    Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling thought: wasnt her request the same as asking for their life? Giggling, Kou Zhong said, The reason we came here other than to spend money is exactly to find a place to take a bath and change our clothes.

    Puzzled, the procuress asked, You dont have even half a bundle, where will the change of clothes come from?

    Kou Zhong calmly turned to Xu Ziling and said, Xiongdi, please give this Dage a lot of money so that he can buy two sets of clothes for us.

    Xu Ziling reluctantly took out a quarter of all the silver in his possession and handed it to the man. The man and the procuress immediately broke into smiles.

    After the man left, still with a big smile on her face, the procuress accepted Xu Zilings tip and said respectfully, Shaoye please follow Nujia [female slave, referring to self].

    When the two boys heard her, whose face was covered in heavy rouge, whose bloody mouth wide open like a sacrificial bowl, saying the two words nujia, the hair on their entire body stood on its end; they looked at each other and smiled bitterly.

    Just as they were about to step forward, a chirpy oriole-like voice came from behind, Chen Daniang [aunt, fathers older brothers wife]! Which auntie are these two Gongzi looking for?

    All three of them turned around in surprise. They saw a beautiful, lively girl stood behind them. Behind the girl stood a quiet maid and two bodyguards. The girl stared coyly and smiled flirtatiously at the two boys; her posture was extremely provocative in a loose way.

    The girl had a fair skin, youthful and tender, her figure shapely, her face elegant, dazzling and beautiful. Even in Yangzhou, which was well-known for its prostitutes, this kind of youthful glow, which was without broken flower, withered willow feel at all, was extremely rare.

    The two boys stared blankly at her, while that Auntie Chen immediately stepped forward to greet her, beaming with joy. Turns out its Qingqing, my obedient daughter, she cooed, Lu Daye has been waiting for you the whole night.

    Qingqing looked at Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling up and down several times. Pfft! she giggled and said, The sky has just turned dark, how could they wait for me the whole night? But if they still want to continue waiting, they will wait the whole night. She spoke while walking over toward the two boys, and circled around them in great interest.

    Is this the first time you two boys come to this place? she asked, Just now Nujia saw you outside, but I was inside the carriage, so you did not see me.

    Auntie Chen put on her best smiling face; she came over with a forced laugh, The two Gongzi are here to visit the bathhouse. Why dont my Qingqing be a good girl and greet Lu Daye, huh?

    Qingqing let out a tender snort and said, Tonight your Miss only want to accompany these two Gongzi. Reaching out to grab the two boys arms, she said, Come! Follow me!

    She turned to her maid and ordered her to get some bath supplies, leaving the procuress stood in the hall while staring blankly at her.

    The two boys exchanged glances, they were both very excited with their luck that has just flown in; they thought that if their virginity was destroyed by this kind of woman, it was certainly worth it.

    However, they had just left the hall, the smiling expression on Qingqings face immediately vanished without a trace. Pushing the two boys through a long corridor, they arrived at the bathhouse; turns out it was a hot spring bath.

    Qingqing pushed the two boys in and coldly said, Go take a bath!

    The two boys were still stunned when the maid arrived with bath towel and other bathing supplies. Qingqing took one set and pushed it into Xu Zilings hands. With a wooden expression she said, Take your time! No need to hurry! And then she turned around and left. She even closed the door.

    While the two boys were still staring blankly at the closed door, they heard Qingqings nervous voice outside, Has Huang Gongzi arrived? And then they heard the sound of footsteps going farther and farther away.

    They suddenly realized that they were being used by this girl. Kou Zhong angrily threw the towel and everything else on the floor.

    The two boys looked at each other, and then almost simultaneously they doubled up in laughter; they laughed so hard that they were nearly out of breath, with tears flowing down their face.

    [1] I feel that I need to explain this young master term more. Shao means younger or lesser, while Ye means master, as in master-servant or superior-subordinate relationship (Laoye, old master, Daye, big master, Shaoye, young master]. The other term is Gongzi, which is a polite term to refer to young men in general. I figure it is similar to Master in old English literature, like Charles Dickens Christmas Carol, where Scrooge addressed Bob Cratchits son as Master. Example would be last chapter, where Shen Naitang addressed Liang Shunming as Gongzi.

    Default Book 2 - Chapter 3, Part 2

    SzFong, Anh, Jaya, HPC, Weed, you are most welcome. Here is the end of chapter 3.


    Half a day later the two boys happily immersed themselves in the tepid water, washing away the dirt, getting rid of the disgrace. Kou Zhong said with a laugh, We must have violated Peach Blossom Fiend[2] tonight; first we were tripped by that unruly girl that we tumbled down, then this unruly woman is using us as a bridge. With all these bad luck, the only consolation is that we recover our freedom and preserve our little lives.

    Xu Ziling shook his head as he said with a laugh, Judging from the Ol Dus foot strength, right now he must be a hundred li away. And when he still cannot find us, he would think that our qinggong [lightness skill] is more formidable than his. Ah! Not right!

    The two boys countenance changed. They both realized that if Du Fuwei could not catch up with them, he would come back to search for them here.

    Knock! Knock! Suddenly there was a knock on the door.

    The two boys immediately slid down underwater.

    Gongzi! The clothes are here!

    Greatly delighted, the two boys jumped out of the pool, opened the door, took the clothes, hurriedly put them on, and then slipped out the door and walked back toward the rear courtyard.

    From all around the courtyard their ears were assaulted by the sound of music and singing, the clamor of people laughing and talking, plus the hooting of people playing finger-guessing game and betting on drinks; it was certainly very noisy and lively. Unfortunately the two boys felt as if they lived in a big cold earth where there was no prospect of life; they were not the least bit affected by the gaiety of the world around them.

    Yet they were still unaware that Du Fuwei has just stepped into the main gate of this pleasure house.

    The two boys dodged to the left and slipped to the right, finally they reached the rear courtyard. But as soon as they looked around, their hearts sank, because the entire backyard was surrounded by solid, impenetrable tall wall [orig. not one drop can trickle through], more than two zhang high. The only way out was via an iron gate; to them, it was tantamount to a big prison where the heavens was the only way out.

    Kou Zhong threw himself toward the iron gate. But when he felt the lock with his hand, he was shaken, My mother! he exclaimed, Who sawed the padlock?

    Xu Ziling was greatly delighted. Who cares? he said, Lets go!

    Kou Zhong carelessly tossed the broken padlock and then he forced the door open. Two boys slipped out and reclosed the gate.

    While they were still thinking which direction to take, they heard hoof beats. A horse-drawn carriage came out from the shadow across the street. The man driving the carriage called out, Qingqing! Get in the carriage!

    The two boys were stunned. And then it suddenly dawned on them that Qingqing was going to elope with her sweetheart.

    In the meantime the man driving the carriage had seen clearly that they were not Qingqing and her maid; surprised, he halted the carriage.

    Kou Zhong waved at him and laughed. Then he and Xu Ziling slipped away into a small lane on the opposite side. But they were only taking two steps when he suddenly stopped, pulled Xu Ziling along, and whispered, I have a great idea!

    Under the carriage! Xu Ziling excitedly replied.

    The two boys slapped their hands together and then turned around and hurry back.

    The iron gate was opening again, Qingqing and her maid, who by this time have worn mens clothing, darted out the door and into the carriage.

    That Huang Gongzi lightly tapped the horsewhip onto the horses buttocks, the carriage started moving, and very soon it started accelerating.

    Right this moment Du Fuwei had just flown over the wall overlooking the rear courtyard; he saw the carriage moving away. Immediately he exerted his true qi, and jumped into the air. Like a shooting star he flew toward the carriage, and landed about ten zhang behind it. Right away he ran after the carriage.

    Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling saw Du Fuweis frightening long legs were getting nearer and nearer; they were so scared that they did not dare to breathe.

    Du Fuwei increased his speed and flew toward the window. Focusing his eyes, he looked through the carriage screen and into the dark cabin. As soon as he saw that they were not Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling, he somersaulted and jumped onto the roof of a nearby building to scan the surrounding for fear that the two boys have run far away.

    By the time the two boys were breathing a sigh of relief, the carriage had just passed the big board above the city gate, and galloped onward on the official road.

    The carriage stopped. Qingqing got out of the carriage door, and sat on the driver seat next to that Huang Gongzi. Next, the two boys heard kissing sound.

    Under the carriage, the two boys were greatly envious.

    After half a day, Huang Gongzi said, Do you have it?

    Immensely proud of herself, Qingqing replied, Of course. I earned these pearls, jewels and money, naturally I am taking everything away.

    Under the carriage, Kou Zhong whispered in Xu Zilings ear, Turns out he is just a dirty old man who swindles money and sex; shall we take a bit of advantage [orig. lead away a goat in passing]?

    Xu Ziling shook his head resolutely. I dont want this kind of butchering-meat money, he said, Dont forget Niangs expectation on us.

    A bit nervous, Qingqing said, Cant we move a bit faster? Those underlings of Xie Laoda have fast horses.

    The carriage suddenly turned from the official road and continued galloping on the open plain.

    Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling were holding on tight with their hands and feet on the axles. As the carriage traveled along a bumpy field, they were shaken and tossed around so hard that they could not hold on anymore.

    Qingqing suddenly asked in horror, Where are you going?

    Huang Gongzi replied, I dont know why the carriage is particularly slow today. Let us hide in the forest ahead for a while, and then after the pursuing party passed by, we can continue our journey.

    Qingqing did not understand. Didnt we prepare a boat ahead? Arent we going to board the boat and sail to Poyang? How can we change our plan so easily?

    By this time the carriage had pulled into the forest. That Huang Gongzi had Qingqing lighted two wind lanterns. After galloping along a short stretch of road, he stopped the carriage.

    Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling could not hold on anymore, they let go and fell onto the grassy ground underneath the carriage.

    Huang Gongzis hey hey wanton laughter was heard from above. Come! he said lecherously, We nothing to do anyway; lets get intimate inside the carriage.

    Qingqing angrily responded, Presently others are frightened and nervous, how can I have the mood? Besides, Xier is inside.

    What are you afraid of? Huang Gongzi replied, Sooner or later Xier will be mine too!

    From the front, the two people entered the carriage.

    Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling were crawling to stand up. They were about to leave when suddenly from inside the carriage they heard the rustling noise of people struggling, followed by Xiers shrieking, Let go of my Miss!

    The two boys were startled; they did not expect that not only this Huang Gongzi wanted to swindle money and sex, he also wanted to commit murder. Quickly they sprang up and open the carriage door by force, and just in time to see Huang Gongzi was strangling Qingqings throat, while Xier has been pushed down by him into the corner.

    Kou Zhong rushed inside and punched Huang Gongzis back. Huang Gongzi howled in pain and thus his hand loosened.

    Xu Ziling grabbed the bun of his hair, with some supernatural power that he did not know he had, he pulled Huang Gongzis entire body and threw him outside the carriage without too much trouble.

    This man obviously did not know martial art, being punched and kicked by the two boys, he was unable to crawl back up for half a day. Hero, please spare my life! he said in quivering voice.

    Qingqing stroked her throat while coughing incessantly. With a choked voice she called out, Stop hitting him!

    The two boys were taken aback. Dont you know he wanted to take your money as well as your life? Kou Zhong asked.

    Qingqing nodded. She hastily walked over to give Huang Gongzis handsome face several fierce kicks. Finally she sat slumped on the ground dejectedly and angrily shouted, Get lost!

    Blood had already filled Huang Gongzis face; hearing her, it was as if he had just received the Emperors pardon. Rolling and crawling he entered the forest, away from the reach of the lantern lights.

    By this time the pretty maid Xier was helping Qingqing up. Four people, eight eyes met, nobody knew what to say.

    Qingqings erect breasts rose and fell continuously. Staring at the two boys, her countenance turned ugly as she said, Its you!

    Stunned, Kou Zhong said, Is that how you treat your benefactors who have just saved your life?

    Qingqing stomped her foot, Even if I am killed, its none of your, two little demons business.

    Xier could not put up with it any longer, she shook Qingqings arm and said, Miss! They are good people!

    Qingqings eyes were brimming with tears, yet she was still throwing tantrums, I dont care! she said, Get lost!

    The two boys felt really awkward. Xu Ziling still gave her earnest and well-meaning advice, If you know how to ride a horse, just untie the horse pulling the carriage, then you can go a bit faster.

    Throwing his arm around Kou Zhongs shoulder, with the other arm he waved, and then walked away.

    Qingqing threw herself on the ground, crying, I dont want those two little demons despise me! I am so angry I want to die!

    Xier was still looking at the direction the two boys went. The dark and dense forest seemed to extend far away endlessly. In her heart she mused that after taking a bath, those two boys actually looked better-looking than that Huang Gongzi; no wonder her Miss, who has always been strong-willed and eager to win at everything, did not wish for them to see her falling into misfortune like this.

    Thanks, foxs.

    DFW is really a good tracker, he came close with the two even without any trail left behind to see.

    Ergo, the two always happen to rescue damsels in distress. It happened with Susu and now with Qingqing. They must be paying back their Niang's rescues of them before.
